Storage Unit Bulk Shredding

Managing or owning a business comes with record keeping, which is an essential part of operations. Record keeping can involve paper files containing sensitive and confidential information about your business and your clients, such as bank statements, payroll records, health history, and more. As dictated by laws and guidelines, certain documents must be retained for specified periods of time. This leads many offices and businesses to store boxes of documents in a storage facility until they’ve passed their retention period and it’s time to securely destroy them.

When the time comes for documents at your storage facility to be shredded and cleaned out, considering your options and how to accomplish secure destruction can be overwhelming. Thankfully, BWS has options, including same day and next day shredding services, to help make the process as simple as possible and budget-friendly for customers.

“My review from 2019: Still using BWS and still think they're great! My review from 2016: We've been doing business with BWS for a few years now, and their service and pricing are great.

I would definitely recommend BWS to anyone in the market for waste disposal at a great price with excellent service.”

They were responsive and quickly start services. They were also great at answering all my questions and updating on when services would start.

Rebecca Crouse, Randolph Macon Academy

We used BWS for sharps disposal at a doctor's office. I saw their bright truck in the parking lot at work which lead me to call for a quote. They responded to my inquiry quickly and thoroughly, answering all my questions. They gave me pricing that was very reasonable, and lower than many companies I checked. They were a pleasure to communicate with via phone and email, no phone tag! The truck arrived the day and time we planned. The driver was very personable and easy to communicate with. The people I interacted with seem to understand the value of customer service. I would highly recommend them. They will take care of you.

I ran a dental charity for many years, organizing huge clinics to treat those in need. BWS donated their waste disposal services for every clinic for many years, and they continue to do so to this day. This is always a huge job, and they are always reliable, dedicated, and fun to work with. They know what it means to give back.
